30 Jun Surgeries to Enhance Your Bust Line: Breast Augmentation vs Breast Lift
If you are looking to enhance the appearance of your bust line, there are a number of options available. The surgery and technique you choose will depend on the specific issues you are hoping to resolve and the overall outcome you want to achieve. Two of the most popular procedures for breast enhancement are breast augmentation and a breast lift and your board certified plastic surgeon can help address questions.
Breast Augmentation vs Breast Lift
Breast augmentation addresses the size, shape, and volume of the breasts, but does not correct sagging. Breast lift surgery is specifically designed to reposition breasts to a more youthful location to eliminate drooping. Often, these procedures are combined for complete rejuvenation of the breasts.
Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most popular cosmetic procedure in the US. The purpose of breast augmentation is to actually increase your cup size by placing implants into your breasts to get a larger size.
Breast augmentation surgery involves surgical insertion of saline or silicone breast implants. Patients can choose from a variety of breast implants since there are different types, textures, sizes, and shapes. If a woman who is seeking a breast augmentation also has a problem with drooping breasts, the augmentation procedure alone will not reposition the nipples for a more natural look. In these circumstances, it may be necessary to perform both augmentation and a lift.
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, raises and firms the breasts for a whole new contour. A breast lift is the surgical removal of excess skin to tighten the breast area for a younger, perkier appearance. While some procedures may provide additional cleavage due to the new positioning of the breasts, this technique does not actually make the breasts bigger by itself. This procedure can be performed on its own or combined with other breast procedures such as breast reduction surgery.

While breast procedures can be combined or performed individually, it is important to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your needs and goals.
